Turner Drive, Westlakes
Tickets: $9.00
Sound Rehearsal: 4.00pm

Today, ABBA flew in from Melbourne after a relaxing last day there.
Their exit from Melbourne and arrival in Adelaide was well documented in the press.

ABBA stayed only one day in Adelaide at The Parkroyal Motor Inn at 208 South Terrace - a 10 minute walk from the city centre. The Hotel has changed it's name several times since 1977. Today it is called 'Sage Hotel'. One short scene in ABBA The Movie with Ashley was filmed on the hotel balcony. The scene can be seen shortly before Why Did It Have To Be Me.

For full details and lots of pics and clippings, check out my blog post from 2016:
